    yea iv been reading about "limp mode" do you know if the solenoids are hard to replace for a diy.

  • 240cpa May 11, 2010

    I'm not sure what you are asking. The instrument panel normally displays all the selections in lights. Are you saying that they are all lit with the circle over them as though the van is in that gear?

Sounds like it has gone into limp mode - stuck in first but still driveable. Could be just a bad solenoid and nothing worse.

Mine is going out on my 2003 and I just passed the 80k mileage limit for that part to be under warranty so I feel your pain.

    it's about an hour and a half at the shop rate, and probably worth it. I need to have one done because it sprang a leak and will let them do it. It's hard to know for certain whether it is just the solenoid and unless you have the device to pull computer codes, you probably need to have it diagnosed so you don't pay twice.

I have a 2001 Honda Civic that did not pass emissions test. My


A. DTC P1705: Short in Transmission Range Switch (TRS) Circuit. The TRS lights the A/T gear position indicator in the instrument panel shows which gear has been selected.

The PCM also uses this information in order to manage the fuel system for maximum efficiency. The most obvious symptom you will see is the A/T gear position indicator lights will not come on or come on in the wrong position.

Once this is repaired emissions should pass

How to replace light bulb on a clock 2004 Honda Odessey


Here are the steps:

1. Undo the panels to the left and right of the steering column.
2. Remove the panel that encloses the instrument cluster.
3. Replace the light bulb located on the back of the panel (removed in step 2).
4. Reinstall the instrument panel (removed in step 2).
5. Reinstall the panels on the left and right of the steering column.

Here are the details:

FIRST - Disconnect the battery. Be careful to locate the radio security code and radio station memory locations before you disconnect though. I chose to disconnect the ground (black wire) from the battery. Be careful to put the cable away from the battery terminal.



Step 1: Undo the panels to the left and right of the steering column.
a. Put on your parking break. You'll want to prevent the car from moving because you will soon put the car in gear.
b. Put your keys and turn to the starting position (but don't try to start the car). This allows the gear lever to move.
c. Move the gear shift to lowest gear. This puts the gear shift lever to a place nearly out of the way of the panel so that you can pry it out.
d. Using bare hands, pull smartly on the plastic edge closest to the steering wheel. Pry out the panels by hand as they are both held by tabs. This is hardest to do the first time. Keep in mind that these are pieces of plastic, so be careful. Once panels are out, let them dangle. You only need access to the instrument panel screws.

Step 2: Remove the panel that encloses the instrument cluster.
e. Remove the 8 screws that keep the instrument cluster panel in place.
o Two on left of steering wheel
o Two on top of instrument cluster (upside-down)
o Four on right side of steering wheel
f. Wiggle/pry out the instrument cluster panel. Be careful as the center is held in stronger than the sides. In addition to screws, there are different tabs that assist in holding this in place.
g. Before removing the instrument cluster panel, disconnect the clock and emergency light electrical connectors. While the clock connector disconnects easily, the emergency light has a locking tab that needs to be pushed in to disconnect. I used a small screwdriver to push in the tab to get the connector to disconnect.
h. Remove the instrument panel. Turn it over and locate the clock's protective cover.
i. Open the clock's protective cover by loosening the tabs. Be very gentle to these tabs.
j. Once the cover is removed locate the light bulb.

Step 3: Replace the light bulb located on the back of the panel (removed in step 2).
k. Unscrew the light bulb and remove.
l. Install the new light bulb. Check the light bulb before you install it. Be careful when rotating the new light bulb. in place. I've read in other posts that the light bulbs are VERY sensitive. I used a small screwdriver with plastic on the head to screw the light bulb. in.
m. Replace the clock's protective cover.
o. Reconnect the clock and emergency light's electrical connectors.

Step 4. Reinstall the instrument panel (removed in step 2).
p. Fit the instrument cluster panel back into it's original position. Be careful with the fan vents. I suggest aligning the fan vents first, then fitting the panel.
q. Screw in the 8 screws that keep the instrument cluster panel in place.

Step 5. Reinstall the panels on the left and right of the steering column.
r. Push both panels back into place.
s. Move the gear shift lever back to park.
t. Remove the car key.
u. [Optional - disengage the parking brake]

LAST - Reconnect the battery.

TEST - Reinsert your keys and turn them to the starting position (but don't start the car). The clock light should light up.

Note: Because the power has been reset, you will need to enter the factory stereo code and reset your radio stations.

How do i replace the dashboard light bulb for a 1985 el camino


you need to disconnect the speedometer then remove the 6 or 8 screws that hold the instrument panel to the dash.if its an automatic you will have to unhook the shift indicator cable from the shift colume.then pull the instrument panel out of the dash,turn the panel upside down and you will see the bulb sockets.replace all the bulbs at this time so you won`t have to do this again for another bulb.when hooking up the shift indicator cable make sure it indicates the properly selected gear when moving the shifter to each gear position.

The gear selection lamp, inside the instrument panel, does not reflect the actual gear I am in. It jumps around, depending upon which gear I select. It is rarely accurate. I know what gear I am in...


Replace your Transmission Range Sensor (Also called "Neutral Safety Switch") It is located on top of the transmission housing under the shift lever where the shift cable hooks up.

1999 s80 gear shift sensor


It sounds like the gear selector module is going out. Other than replacing it I don't have much for you. I would take it to a shop you trust and have them run the codes to see if your getting a faulty signal code.

Sorry I can't help more.
